As a problem child I couldn't understand
Why my daddy threw me out
To hit the streets at an early age, wasn't easy
Some friends of mine kinda helped me out
Got well known in the city
"The harder they come, the harder they fall", no way
We found the easiest way to the money
Just reach out to a helping hand and cut it off
"A damned disgrace" is what the sheriff said
A few red lights and here I am

IT'S NICE, NICE, NICE TO BE A KING
IT'S NICE, NICE, NICE TO BE A KING

Now, hoppin' and boppin' with the beautiful people
At the parties in Hollywood
And I don't care what people say
All the beautiful girls, they stare at me
And I'm high for the rest of the night
"Oh boy, you really made it this time"
Still know the fastest way to the money
Just reach out for a helping hand and cut it off
"A nice kid" is what the sheriff said
No red lights and here I stand, here I am

IT'S NICE, NICE, NICE TO BE A KING
IT'S NICE, NICE, NICE TO BE A KING

I'm alone here-with big shiny cars
I'm alone here-with all my money
I'm alone here-Are you for sale? Are you for sale?
I'm alone here-Come on honey, let's go
